UN court did not impose provisional measures on the FRG because of military aid to Israel

The UN International Court of Justice in The Hague does not consider it necessary to impose provisional measures in the proceedings between Nicaragua and Germany over military aid to Israel.


The decision was announced by the court’s chairman Nawaf Salam.

According to TASS, citing Salam, the court concluded that “the current circumstances do not require the imposition of interim measures.”

Salam drew attention to the fact that Germany has reduced the number of issued licences to export military products to Israel, as well as supported initiatives through the European Union to fund the UN Relief and Works Agency for Palestinian Refugees in the Near East.

In February, the UN International Court of Justice ruled that the Rafah situation did not require the imposition of additional interim measures against Israel, which South Africa had requested.

At the same time, UN High Commissioner for Human Rights Volker Türk said that the world community should not allow the Israel Defence Forces to conduct a military operation on the territory of Rafah.
